karla from Omaha, United States

Ohh, I love this--the lone cow (a favorite subject though I don't have the opportunity for photographing them), the lone tree dipping below the horizon, the way you combined the textures. The result is creative and artistic! :)

23 Nov 2011 10:17pm

@karla: Thank you, Karla. Lots of cows around here. I'm wanting to capture the "feel" of the countryside surrounding me.
